Journeys To Freedom

The NorthStar Historical Project in cooperation with the Greenwich Historical Association and the Greenwich Free Library will be hosting a fund raiser on Sunday, February 29, 2004 at 3:00 p.m. at the United Church at 37 Salem Street in Greenwich, NY.

The Young Performers Creative Dance Company and Friends will be performing Journeys to Freedom based on the book Steal Away to Freedom by Jennifer Armstrong of Saratoga. For those of you who attended last year's conference, this was the morning performance an Saturday. If you enjoyed this performance, please share this with your friends or anyone who you think might be interested in attending.

The story is about two young girls; one of who grew up in the north until her parents passed away. She was sent to live with her aunt and uncle in Virginia where she was promptly given a slave of her own. The two girls plan their escape on the Underground Railroad and together they head north. Their adventure takes them to the homes of brave individuals who are willing to risk their fives and their property to help them escape. They encounter many perils as well. It is a very exciting performance

The story is suitable for children as well as adults. The suggested donation is $5.00 for adults. Children 12 and under may attend free of charge. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
